Trump weighs in on Roseanne: Where's my apology from ABC?

President Trump on Wednesday responded to ABC’s firing of Roseanne Barr over a tweet that made a racist slur against former Obama adviser Valerie Jarrett. And, true to form, the president made it about him.

“Bob Iger of ABC called Valerie Jarrett to let her know that ‘ABC does not tolerate comments like those’ made by Roseanne Barr,” Trump tweeted, referring to Disney chief Iger. “Gee, he never called President Donald J. Trump to apologize for the HORRIBLE statements made and said about me on ABC. Maybe I just didn’t get the call?”

It’s unclear what statements Trump was referring to. His tweet came less than a day after White House Press Secretary Sarah Sanders said the president was too busy to comment on Barr.
